Abstract: Due to advances in space technology, certain satellite sensors have unique power of capturing data and also generate special kind of observations. The Day and Night Visible Bands (DNB) of VIIRS Sensor mounted on Suomi NPP Satellite provide useful information in real-time monitoring of restoration of electrification after the trigger of a tropical cyclone. Since the destruction ca used by a tropical cyclone is severe, therefore, both restoration and its monitoring play a vital role for law enforcement agencies. This paper presents a novel method to monitor electricity restoration spatially using image processing with VIIRS DNB data. The proposed method is experimented with the cyclone Fani hit Orissa coast during April-May 2019. To conclude, the work accurately determines the spatial analysis of electrification restoration after a tropical cyclone landfall is occurred.
